Sneek a Peek into my Sketchy Life – another day . . . another nude . . .

This is the best of the lot.  What?  You didn’t think I’d post my sketches that look like they were drawn by a monkey?  

                                  Charcoal sketch

I’ve figured out (pun intended) two things:

  1. I prefer drawing women or men with a bit of flesh on the bone.  There are more curves and lumps which make it more fun to draw. Most of the models, like the one today, have beautiful “hard bodies”.  
  2. Everything I do lately points to my limited concentration span.  While others bemoan not having enough time to finish drawing during the 40 minute poses (two – 20 minutes with a break in-between for the model.  Try sitting perfectly still for 20 minutes) I have done two or three drawings.  I would prefer to think it’s not concentration span but it’s because I don’t particularly like “realism” and am not interested in getting an exact likeness . . .
“Ouch.  We monkeys have talent, not to mention  feelings. . .

    1. THANK YOU for the “lovely”. Yes, she has been a frequent model (maybe that’s why I’m getting bored?). She’s a ballet dancer and strikes very elegant and sometimes convoluted poses.

  1. Nice texture and depth for monotone sketches. If you get tired of retirement, could set up an easel on the strand on Hermosa Beach and do quick charcoal portraits for $35. I’ll take one!

      $35!!! By the time I’m good enough to do quick portraits of anyone and have them look like the person I’ll charge BIG BUCKS. Retirement, of course, is priceless . . . literally.
